Unfortunately our food was not up to par for this restaurant, and that was the case for all six in our party. The service was very good, but something was definitively off in the kitchen. Hoping it was just an off night.

Our choice for dining with a group of neighbors after a theater event was a hit! Food was excellent! They were able to accommodate a guest with food allergies, wine pours are generous, and the chocolate soufflé a must! Michael , our server, was attentive and clearly enjoys his job.

We enjoyed an evening at YaYa's. Food quality is always high here. The calamari and salads were very good. Even the bread is better than just about everywhere else. Scallops and blue marlin were both outstanding. You get a third of the bottle pours if you order wine by the glass. Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable. Same managers here for some time and it shows.

Couldn't believe how fast and easy it was to make reservations online!! I have never experienced this before and it was very user friendly ! The food was delicious and our server was extremely knowledgeable about the menu. She was very personable and attentive, but not annoying. A great date night for me and my husband!

this continues to be one of our top five restaurants in St. Louis. Celebrating my wife' birthday, so well done by the waitress, Lisa. Excellent fresh fish option, unusual source but quite excellent. The filet has always been excellent and was on this night. Wine choices are numerous, we have settled on one, buy the bottle and take home what we do not drink.

We usually come for brunch, but decided to come for lunch on New Year’s Day. The
food was good, as usual. Unfortunately the menu description of the salmon was not accurate.

We have dined at Ya Ya's several times before and enjoyed a nice meal and good service. However, today was very disappointing. We were seated promptly in their private room which was nice. Our drink orders were taken as soon as we were seated which was great. All of us ordered coffee, but when it was poured it was lukewarm. We brought it to the waitress's attention. She did not apologize & acted as though we were inconveniencing her to bring a hotter pot. Most of us ordered soup for lunch, but also found it to be lukewarm. One of our guests politely mentioned it to the waitress again, and she again did not seem to care or offer to do anything. We might have understood the poor service had the restaurant been busy, however, it was quite empty. We were very disappointed in our dining experience today.

Perfect New Year's Eve dinner with friends, nice choices of fish and steaks, wine choices continue to be excellent. Ya-Yas is one of our favorite restaurants in West County and we use it often. Have never been for an occasion such as New Year's and it was very busy and alive.

As usual, the service and the food were both outstanding! On our last visit, the restaurant was very busy but our server paced our meal perfectly - we never felt rushed and everything that hit the table was perfect. John and the rest of the staff are definitely focused on making the customer happy!

That was absolutely the WORST brunch buffet I’ve ever been to! They’re not setup for this kind of service, and they really acted like they didn’t even care - brunch was just a money grab. Sloppy messy disgusting lines with food and spills and drips everywhere. Undercooked attempts at eggs Benedict with over salted broken sauces. Over cooked burnt bacon. Prime ribs more grissle that meat. Paper thin undercooked room temp french toast. Dry waffles pancakes and biscuits. Biscuit gravy too salty to eat. And in and on and on I swear it felt like an episode of the show “punked”.

This goes in the books as the most disappointing STL meal I’ve ever had..


Seriously between the 3 of us we ate at best $10 worth of actual food COMBINED, and paid over $100.

We went to Sunday Brunch on New Year’s eve day. Have always heard how great the brunch was but never went What an excellent brunch with freshly prepared food, healthy food,alway fresh and buffet table restocked We were pleasantly surprised!
We waited 30 minutes for our drinks for our waitress forgot to put in the order! She never returned to our table after serving the drinks except to bring the bill after we asked another waiter for our bill! The other servers serviced our table very well I did not want to tip the waitress.. I am hoping they pool tips!
The manager was very welcoming and the Managing Partner stopped by our table to service it and check on things He was a delight to meet!
This was our first time to Ya Ya,s since they opened. Will go back again definitely for the Brunch but will try dinner again!

We always enjoy our meals at Ya Yas. Our table was over in a corner this time, and would have been more comfortable for 4 people than for the 5 of us. As usual, the service and food was outstanding. We enjoy the option to select 2 entrees. We prefer to eat fish, and the fish options are all wonderful. You need to save room to share desserts.

Had a couple of issues with the food, but we pointed it out and they responded quickly showing great concern that they make it right, which they did. That to me shows the quality of a place. Things can go wrong, its expected, (although as a regular this was the first time ever), its how they respond that shows the true greatness of a place.

It was my second time for Sunday Brunch. The assortment was excellent and the food was delicious. My only complaint is that the roasted chicken thighs were so dried out, I couldn't swallow! Everything else was just great, including the $4 bloody Mary! Great (deveined!) peel and eat shrimp, great omelets, fresh fruit and salads! And the service was absolutely 5 star. Our wait person anticipated our needs and was always there for coffee refills.
